Course overview

Spanish is the second most widely spoken language in the world, with over 400 million native speakers, making it one of the most commonly understood languages.

What will I study?

The A level specification builds on the knowledge, understanding and skills gained at GCSE. It constitutes an integrated study with a focus on language, culture and society. It fosters a range of transferable skills including communication, critical thinking, research skills and creativity. You will learn an interesting spectrum of social, intellectual, historical and political cultural themes throughout the course across four defining themes and study both a film and piece of literature. You will be asked to undertake a research piece into an area of personal interest in Spain or a Spanish-speaking country to further develop your cultural awareness.
